When applying for a Visa to live and/or work in Australia most applicants already have an idea on which area of the country they will be moving to. However, some applicants may have a few destinations to choose from. There are many factors to take into consideration when you finally decide on where your ‘base’ in Australia is going to be, such as:

* Available housing in the area

* Job opportunities (& current unemployment rate)

* Friends or family already living in the area

* Schools and Universities

* Facilities such as doctors, banks and supermarkets

* Affordability

* Outdoor living such as parks and beaches

* Lifestyle

To help make the decision a little easier, released a list of the top ten most family friendly cities in Australia with Victoria leading the charge hosting 3 of the 10 cities. The factors that were assessed when complying the list included:

* Quality of schooling

* Housing costs

* Crime rate

* Unemployment rate

* Income

* Childcare resources

* Broadband internet connectivity

* Education resources

The end results surprisingly placed more regional cities (as opposed to capital cities) as the best places to live. Here are the results:


1, Wagga Wagga (New South Wales)

2. Canberra (Australian Capital Territory)

3. Albury-Wodonga (New South Wales/Victoria)

4. Toowoomba (Queensland)

5. Sydney (New South Wales)

6. Hobart (Tasmania)

7. Ballarat (Victoria)

8. Bendigo (Victoria)

9. Melbourne (Victoria)

10. Mackay (Queensland)
